Европейский Союз (ЕС) и Совет Европы решительно не приемлют смертную казнь во всех случаях и при любых обстоятельствах. Смертная казнь является жестокой, бесчеловечной и унижающей достоинство мерой наказания, противоречащей праву на жизнь. Смертная казнь означает возмездие, но не справедливость, и отказ от нее способствует укреплению человеческого достоинства.
The European Union (EU) is an economic and political partnership between 28 European countries. It plays an important role in international affairs through diplomacy, trade, development aid and working with global organisations. Abroad, the EU is represented through more than 140 diplomatic representations, known also as EU Delegations, which have a similar function to those of an embassy.
In the first half of 2019 (January-June) advancement of housing units continued on a high level. 5,800 new housing units were advanced in different stages of the planning and implementation process (tenders and plans) in the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem.
Today, the European Union joined over 300 Palestinian students in cleaning the streets of East Jerusalem in conjunction with the International Clean-up Campaign: Let’s Do it! Ten schools from various neighbourhoods in East Jerusalem participated in the initiative and joined the world in this international movement.
On the occasion of the International Day of Democracy, the European Union reaffirms its commitment towards democracy as a fundamental right of every human being. Every woman and every man has to be free to participate to the political, economic and social life of her or his country. No one should fear to speak up, to demonstrate peacefully, to go to vote or to expect fair and inclusive policies from a government. Democracy can only function if participation and trust between democratic state institutions, governments and citizens are guaranteed.
